Hello, we are the British Heart Foundation, beating heartbreak with each donation. Our research projects help save lives — and here are some from our archives.
In the skin of red grapes, a molecule called
resveratrol may cause blood pressure to fall,
as could eating sardines, salmon or mussels.
Oily fish and a glass of red? Not bad at all.
How about implanting a heart ‘patch’
about the size of your thumb?
You see, it’s all that heartbreak
we’re trying to overcome.
Whether it’s algae-based treatment
or printing heart replicas in 3D,
our research is rather inspiring,
wouldn’t you agree?
